    From the Sun in the UK: Pimp my pussy

    Cat owners across the world have been decking their pets out with random objects and posting their pics online.

    Now Mario Garza, who started www.stuffonmycat.com is inundated with silly snaps.

    The 22-year-old designer from California says: “I started placing things on my cat, like pens and pencils, and found she didn’t move.

    “I took pictures and posted them on the net and saw other owners had done a similar thing. So I set up the website, just as fun.”

    That was last year and now Mario receives thousands of photos a day and is cashing in by selling stuffonmycat merchandise.

    Cats have amazing patience to put up with the things that their humans expect them to do. My parents had a cat that I used to toss pennies at (gently) and he would just lie there on the floor happy (apparently) to be the center of attention. Then again though, he may have been laying there thinking up ways to get even with me. :D

    Does anyone else find this co-opted usage of "pimp" to be a disturbing trend? I remember walking down the street after Hurricane Wilma had hit, when a kid proclaimed atop a freshly uprooted tree, "I am the pimp of this tree!" Confused, I didn't know whether to ask how much the going rate was, or to give him a lecture on the good old days, where the word pimp meant a man who tricked or beat a woman into selling her body to strangers for sex so that he could steal her money.
    Damn kids.

    Yes. It's more of the sinking to the lowest common denominator trend. Suddenly anything is acceptable.
